The Department of Counseling houses the Master of Science (MS) programs in Mental Health Counseling and Counseling and Clinical Health Psychology. These programs offer a dynamic curriculum designed to prepare counselors to work in the mental health field or to pursue doctoral study in psychology and counseling.

At PCOM, counseling graduate students focus on understanding the whole person in a manner that is consistent with the osteopathic philosophy of the university.
